Travel Diary Entry 2 | Home Decor

Jul 27, 2015

This second home tour from our European vacation is of the delightful Airbnb we stayed in while in Gothenburg. We've used Airbnb on three occasions and in three different countries (Canada, USA and Sweden) and each time the experience has been a great one.

Location was key for us on this trip because we didn't want to be spending any time commuting to the main city centre. This apartment in Gothenburg was centrally located and belonged to a very kind and accommodating host.

The decor style is best described as a casual and clever mix of Scandinavian Bohemian.  Burnt orange and deep dark teal infused fun playful colours, while the modern kitchen cabinets and sleek low backed couch supported the traditional scandinavian appeal. An exposed brick wall is a visual delight in the main living space, adding beautiful texture to an otherwise white walled space.

Large windows extending to the ceiling allow ample natural light to flow through, giving this apartment a bright and airy feel. One of my favourite elements is the plank tile in the kitchen which flows seamlessly into the oak hardwood. The planked style provides visual rustic appeal while the light grey colour and sleek lines offset a cottagey chic feel.

Another favourite feature of mine is the large rustic light which hangs over the dining table. This simple piece is full of character and charm. Although quite the statement, as the only hanging light fixture in the main living/dining room area combined with the blank white walls surrounding it, this fixture stands out perfectly without being overbearing.

We couldn't have been happier with these accommodations,  it felt like it could've been our own!

This week, after much deliberation, I'm giving our vintage kitchen table a makeover. Hope to share the before & after with you soon.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week!
